Chris Dumont, Manchester-Essex: In a quarterfinal matchup against previously undefeated Brighton, the senior back ran for 242 yards and five touchdowns — three of which came in the fourth quarter — as the Hornets stunned the Bengals, 42-28.
Nate Glaster, Ipswich: The versatile senior scored on a punt return and a kickoff return, ran in a score, and hauled in a 55-yard touchdown pass for the game-winner as the Tigers narrowly evaded Saugus, 40-39.
Keagan Latta, Lowell: The senior defensive back picked off three passes — returning one for a touchdown — and took a fumble recovery to the end zone as well in the Red Raiders’ 41-0 Division 1 North quarterfinal shocker over defending Super Bowl champion St. John’s Prep. He also caught a 26-yard touchdown pass.
Mike Prescott, Georgetown: The Royals snapped a 17-game losing streak behind the senior back’s 126-yard, three touchdown performance in a 21-14 win over Shawsheen.
Patrick Yale, Haverhill: His 25-yard field goal in the third quarter was the eventual game-winning score in a 10-7 Division 2 North quarterfinal nail-biter over Lynn English. The junior also intercepted two passes in the fourth quarter, proving to be a clutch performer in multiple facets of the game.
